"Shell is no one's son. His family was murdered on Alderaan. He was here visiting his grandmother, but the shock of the attack was too much for her and... He's on his own now."
J'er Nahj on Shell and his grandmother[src]

Shell's grandmother was a Human female who resided on the planet Delaya. In 0 BBY, her grandson Shell paid her a visit when Alderaan was destroyed by the Galactic Empire's first Death Star. Due to the shock, she later died, leaving Shell an orphan.
